Enjoy a carpet of dainty pink colchicums in your autumn garden. Our Colchicum bulbs are perfect for naturalising and creating that wild flower meadow look, and their beautiful pink double flowers add a dash of colour to your garden for autumn / winter.

You can end up with up to eight flowers from each bulb, and that means plenty of those stunning pink winter flowers. In springtime, you’ll they’ll grow green fleshy leaves.

A lovely way to achieve some bright white blooms when the colours of summer are dormant, we love colchicums. One bulb can produce up to eight of those double blooms, and their dainty white shade adds a magical touch to your garden.

If you prefer to enjoy them indoors, grow your colchicum bulbs in a shallow container indoors – you won’t even need any soil! Flowers September – November. Height up to 30cm. Waterlily - Big double white blooms - as many as 8 per bulb! Bulb size 14cm+.

Growing Information
Choose a sheltered position in full sun or partial shade. Colchicums require a moist, well drained soil which is rich in organic matter. On heavy clay soils incorporate well rotted garden compost into the soil prior to planting. Plant the corms 8cm deep and 10-15cm apart. Flowers appear September to November followed by the leaves which are produced in spring. If they are grown in a shallow tray indoors, plant them in the garden as soon as the flowers start to fade.
